Alabama Draft Storylines Stemming from Mel Kiper’s Latest Mock Draft Conference Call


ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. released his NFL Mock Draft 3.0 on Tuesday, projecting offensive tackle Evan Neal at No. 5 overall to the New York Giants and receiver Jameson Williams at No. 21 overall to the New England Patriots. Wednesday, Kiper provided insight on his latest draft projections, holding an hour-long media conference call.

Here are a few Alabama potential storylines that stemmed from the conversation.

Neal’s draft stock took a bit of a hit following Jacksonville’s decision to place the franchise tag on fellow former Alabama lineman Cam Robinson, locking him into a one-year deal worth $16.6 million. That move has seen several analysts, including Kiper, project the Jaguars to take Michigan Edge rusher Aiden Hutchinson with the No. 1 overall pick.
